And the Fools On the Hill See the Sun Going Down on America - Rantings of A Mad Woman

Fools on the Hill......
I love that those all-knowing Grand Wizards of all things important, sitting on the Hill in D.C., are JUST figuring out what many have known for 10 friggin' years.

The so-called housing bubble, that churn and burn growth of a market based on air, was the ONLY thing propping up an economy that has needed to do an adjustment since 1998; Staved off by the Republicans in their bids to keep the sleazy corporatists going without oversight.....

Unfettered growth without any natural controls is called Cancer....

Housing was the only thing that grew for years. Everything else dropped or stagnated in a sea of slime that pulled jobs away from citizens and benefits away from workers; Taking them to the eastern /Asian sweat shops and slave camps as well as manipulating the use of undocumented workers to fill the coffers of the largest TRUSTS created by a corporate feeding frenzy gobbling down little "mom and pop shops"; CEOs making millions for screwing their employees, lying to the government and reaping the rewards of insider trading.
EVEN Cheney had his own scam going while using the secret information coming through Washington to make millions off the Euro and keep his shares in Halliburton and KB&R strong.

We are the richest 3rd World Country in the World...No Exported goods and based on all imported products; we have no economy based on production, using most of the World's resources, borrowing and living on credit, and giving nothing back but war and pestilence.

And if things aren't bad enough,
Super JOHN announces he will be the SAVIOR of the Free World again, rushing into Washington (a 1 1/2 hour flight that took 22 hours since he had to run around giving interviews and press conferences announcing his great act of bravery).
With his American Flag cape, he strides into the Capitol, creates mayhem, and encourages rebellion in order to disrupt any real attempts to manage the issue...

Those who believe we must just let the whole thing collapse obviously were products of the Bush family's "No Child left Behind" educational system or, at least, flunked recent World History...That has been tried before...

The last time a lazy President did that very thing in response to the last economic crisis, in the late 20's, ushered in the Great Depression (It is not lost on me that it was another Republican created mess)....

The elderly and the young lost then and they are losing now. No healthcare, no assistance and their safety nets destroyed.

Again we have no healthcare, no assistance and the vast population's safety nets destroyed by the Republicans who went in over the last generation and dismantled all the checks and balances put in place to solve that great dilemma. From REAGAN (the false savior of the world and his laughable "trickle down"...The only thing trickling down is the pissing on the American Middle Class by those in power and the Corporatists they unleashed) to Bush the Elder and Junior King Wanna-Be, they had no clue and are completely tone deaf to the cries of starvation and pain within our own borders!

I am a believer in anold American tradition...There once was a time politicians, caught in their greedy, criminal behavior and manipulation, were tarred, feathered and run out on a rail...
Sounds good to me starting with GWB, Cheney and the rest of the cabal and running through the House and Senate with each and every Republican and Democrat that voted in Gramm-Leach-Bliley, repealing Glass-Steagall (this includes the best Republican president this country has ever seen, William Jefferson Clinton), removing the oversight and controls that kept banks as banks, investment firms as investment firms and separated the lines so they could not bastardize the system.


Bush was warned during the G8 conferences and Economic Summits over the past 8 years but chose to ignore it...The Republicans and the Democrats were warned in 1999 through today and did nothing....

WE NEED ACTION but not appeasement and not the political gamesmanship brought about with election campaigns taking precedent over the American people and the people of the world...Whether we like it or not...As the American economy goes, so goes the rest of the World. WE are responsible and we have the ball....
